Lavrov wraps up Africa tour in Chad

Russia’s foreign minister Sergey Lavrov completed his Africa tour with a visit to N'Djamena, Chad, following stops in Guinea, the Republic of Congo, and Burkina Faso.

During his working visit, Lavrov met with Chadian president Mahamat Deby Itno as well as the Chadian foreign minister Abderaman Koulamallah, according to regional media.

The two sides discussed ways to combat terrorism, and enhance military, diplomatic, economic and trade ties between Chad and Russia, the government said in a statement.

Talks also included the security situation across the countries of the Sahel as well as the war in Sudan, which has displaced around a million people from Sudan into Chad and Libya.

Chad said Russia will provide support to deal with the humanitarian crisis caused by the war against Boko Haram terrorists, a conflict that has killed 36,000 people and displaced 3 million according to the United Nations.
